Drawn to each other, Noni and Kaz fall fast and hard, despite protest from Noni’s Mother (Oscar® Nominee Minnie Driver*) and Kaz’s father (Danny Glover).  However, Kaz’s love might be the missing piece that gives Noni the courage to find her own voice and break free to become the artist she was meant to be.

Enter To Win Teen Wolf: Season Two on DVD!!! Release Date May 21st!!!

Teen Wolf: Season Two on DVD


Get it May 21st 2013


Teen Wolf jumps full force into season two with even more suspenseful drama than season one. Scott McCall, a teenager with a wild secret, continues to find himself caught in a supernatural war between hunters and werewolves. Scott must keep his forbidden romance with Allison a secret while keeping his friends and family safe from new Alfa wolf Derek.

What makes Teen Wolf so popular amongst fans is the array of themes tackled by the show. From romance, to high school survival, the werewolves and their kin have explored various life scenarios, making it universally appealing. One scenario that comes up repeatedly is family drama. Most prevalent: forbidden relationships. How many parents have forbidden their high schoolers from dating people they did not approve of? It seems like every teen has a story about sneaking around their parents’ back to date or smooch with their honey.

For Allison Argent (Crystal Reed) and Scott McCall (Tyler Posey), their love and devotion to each other is greatly affected by the fact that her dad hates Scott and has gone out of his way to confront him. Allison struggles to be happy because she is continuously put in the middle. Should she be loyal to her sweetheart or her family? Should she be loyal to herself?
